Celebs react to Obama denying clemency to Leonard Peltier

Leonard Peltier is a Native American activist and part of American Indian Movement. He was given two life sentences for the fatal shootings of two FBI agents at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1975. He has spent 40 years in jail thus far and this denial is seen as a death sentence. He has maintained his innocence, and Amnesty International along with others have said he received an unfair trial.
